TASTING NOTES

"Dark ruby red. Subtle aromas of blackberry, milk chocolate and vanilla, with cloves and cedar. Full-bodied, with ultrapolished tannins and a long, long aftertaste of cedar, berry and flowers. Continuously changes in the glass. It's very complex.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Best from 2009 through 2018. 385 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Full ruby-red. More minerally and less extravagant on the nose than the '97 Brunate, but still shows rich, liqueur-like notes of red berries, mocha and brown spices. Offers wonderful sweetness and depth, with surprisingly sound framing acidity. Conveys a stronger impression of structure than the Brunate. Finishes with firmer tannins but also great sweetness. This will need time to express itself completely." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"The 1997 Barolo La Serra is a sexy, dense ruby/purple-colored effort offering notes of currants, black cherries, and licorice, a huge, chewy texture, plenty of glycerin, and a creamy, supple, velvety finish. Although impossible to resist, it will develop even more nuances over the next 4-5 years, and should last for two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2023." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #135

"Very deep colour. Exciting intensity on the nose with a lovely sappy, interesting topnote and many layers of flavour. The fruit is so intense that this wine is already fun to drink although tannins creep in at the very end. This wine offers tang and bite with zero pain until the very, very end of the tasting experience." JancisRobinson.com
